This Frozen Cherry Salad not only makes a great summer salad, but it also is perfect for the holidays, too. I don’t usually think of my salad being frozen, but this is almost a cross between a dessert and a salad. (Which most of my favorites are!)
A Cherry Salad Perfect for Picky Eaters
It’s a Cherry Salad that’s sweet but not overpowering. The cherry really complements the flavor without being overbearing. I have a couple of family members who don’t like nuts in their salads, so I didn’t add any nuts in this. However, I think this frozen cherry salad could be really good with the nuts.
I’m sure every family has to deal with someone who is a little picky when it comes to cooking. Oh well, that’s life! You always can find simple ways to adjust to help make everyone enjoy it.
I love that this frozen cherry salad can be made ahead of time, and because it is frozen it can keep for a long time. That way you can enjoy it for more than just a single evening!
